3: Chevy Beretta
Like the Ford Probe of the 1980s and 1990s, the board at GM was also floating the idea of a cheap sports car. Although the Camaro was at the top of the lineup, the Beretta was an excellent entry-level model. The Beretta had a style that was all its own, and that worked to make the car sell quite well initially. The problem was that the under the hood, power was not anywhere near a sports car. Chevy bet on the sporty looks of the car, but it was not enough to propel the car to a sales success.
Build quality on the Beretta was awful, and the interior was the worst part of this. With the lack of quality and performance, the Beretta just couldn’t match up to the competition on the market. A failing sports car segment also contributed to the end of the Beretta, and eventually, the Camaro which was canceled for the 2002 model year.
